I keep trying to photograph rain as I see it and fail every time. A friend of mine told me I needed a filter. I haven’t bought any yet but grabbed a pair of sunglasses and put that in front of the lens. Voila. Rain. Not great, but it’s something. Things like this amaze me.

  1. Rain is hard. In old movies they used to dye the water so when they made rain in a scene the camera could pick it up.

  2. I was wondering how they did it for films. Then I thought about it and realized lots of rain scenes show rain on something, a car, a window, an umbrella, a wet street at night.

    I love those movie secrets, Max.

  3. Well this was in old old black and white movies, I do not know what they do these days.

  4. Let me know if you figure it out.

  5. I think they use blue filters. I want to find out and get some good filters. Putting bad ones in front of good lenses makes the lens only as good as the filter.

    I have Blane the research man on it. That and how to make my computer faster for the best price.
